2. Magneto (Erik Lehnsherr)

I'm all for Magneto getting his own solo movie in the MCU, showing us all the ups, downs, and sideways of being a super-powered magnet guy with a very complicated past.

We'd start with a young Erik Lehnsherr, not yet the helmet-wearing, metal-bending badass we know, but a survivor with a heart full of hurt and a mind set on changing the world for mutants everywhere. This movie would be like a ride through history, with Erik discovering his powers in the most challenging circumstances imaginable, only to grow up and think, "You know what? Maybe I should start my own club for people like me." But not the fun kind of club—more like the "We're going to fight for our rights" kind of club.

This wouldn't just be an origin story - it'd be a deep dive into what makes Magneto tick. We'd see him juggling his two passions: collecting all things metal (because powers) and trying to carve out a safe space for mutants in a world that's not so welcoming. Along the way, there'd be epic battles, heart-breaking moments, and maybe a few laughs as Erik accidentally sticks himself to a giant metal statue. But more than that, we'd get to see the layers behind the villain, understanding why he does what he does and maybe even cheering for him a bit.

Who wouldn't want to watch a movie where the line between hero and villain gets a little bit blurry? It's a tale of tragedy, power, and the quest for mutant rights, all wrapped up into one.
